Harsco Corporation announced the completion of its previously announced acquisition of the Environmental Solutions business (ESOL) from Stericycle, Inc.
This acquisition marks a significant step forward in Harsco’s ongoing transformation into a global, single-thesis environmental solutions platform, with significant financial benefits. More than 85% of the Company’s total revenue is now expected to come from environmental solutions and services.
“The addition of ESOL adds a highly complementary, market-leading waste management portfolio to our already strong business, significantly expanding our scale and reach.
“We continue to be impressed by the depth of talent and value-creation potential of ESOL, and will leverage its extensive logistics network, expertise and strong customer relationships to offer a wider range of tailored, innovative solutions to address our customers’ most pressing environmental challenges. We are confident that shifting our portfolio to less-cyclical businesses with attractive growth potential is the best way to create sustainable, long-term value for shareholders. Furthermore, we are committed to maintaining a strong balance sheet, increasing cash flow and reducing debt as core elements of our financial strategy.
“We have a comprehensive integration framework in place for Day One, and we look forward to quickly benefiting from combining ESOL with our Clean Earth business.”
As previously announced on February 7, 2020, the combination of these businesses creates a national leader in hazardous waste management, with the increased scale, capabilities and geographic reach to serve a broader base of customers across diverse industries. Harsco now owns a leading network of 88 waste management sites across the U.S., including 19 federally-permitted Treatment, Storage and Disposal Facilities (TSDFs). At this time all Clean Earth and ESOL waste management sites and services have been deemed essential by a series of states and as such, remain open and continue to operate.
